I believe it is safe to say that most folks are frustrated with the process of choosing politicians to represent our interests. We are often reduced to being “educated” about our options by sound bites and focus-group tested tag lines on junk mailers
What do we really know about the candidates? Maybe we end up supporting an individual based on political affiliation, or simply don’t exersize the duty to vote because we can’t be sure of who we are supporting.
If you are undecided about who you will support for Columbia County School Board or are considering not voting, allow me to offer some insight into who David Dekle really is. I have had the good fortune to know David and his family for many years. His lengthy experience as a successful attorney has certainly honed his skills for advocating for and resolving issues when many differing individuals and points of view are involved.
Perhaps more importantly, David will bring the right motivation to representing our district. He isn’t a player in anyone’s political agenda. His kids are all enrolled in Columbia County’s public schools, and I have no doubt he will always place their interests along with those of my kids first. If you have longed to be able to support a good person with strong faith and family values, here is your chance to vote for David Dekle. If you have already cast your vote for David during the primary, be sure and complete your support and vote again for him in the runoff.
